Apparently we tried.to buy the panels but when the EFL saw the invoice for Keep Sum Sun they thought it was a new signing and embargoed the purchase.

 

This has happened before

Install company's normally want a 20 yr agreement minimum to justify the install so this may affect SWFC's thinking if they have real possibility of moving grounds.

 

You would also need a fair amount of transformer space, which they may not have.

 

Also, the feed-in tariff rates have dropped significantly over the last five years and is not as attractive as it used to be.

If we did that the solar panels would spell the word CHANSIRI. :Chansiri:

Ive never understood why we havent embraced solar panels on the roof of the stands as a way of generating revenue

 

A friend of mine generates around £80k a year in selling electricty back to the grid because his solar panels on his factory roof generate all the power he needs and more. His factory roof is nowhere near the size of just one of our stand roofs - Im sure we could generate enough electric at Hillsborough to give the club all the free electricity it needs an then generate revenue too.

 

 

 

 

On the face of it, that sounds a good idea. Any solar panel experts in the house?

It would be the perfect investment for the Chairman.

 

He could buy outright the solar panels (negating the need for a solar panel specialist company on a long term deal) - and that would mean immediate profits for the club

 

Infrastructure investment is allowable in FFP.

It is possible to buy and install solar panels yourself for your own generation, but if you want to feed into the grid and get payment for the surplus electricity generated you need MCS certification.

This certification must be carried out by a MCS accredited engineer and most of these won't certify unless the panels are supplied and installed by themselves.

You misunderstand

 

I'm not suggesting Mr C gets the ladders out, some tie wraps and does the work himself. Im suggesting he doesnt need to sign up for one of those long term contracts where you get your panels haevily subsidised by a company that take a share of your profits

I've considered this in quite some depth now, and i think it's because chansiri couldn't run a bath, let alone a profitable football club. Also if we did go down this route, we'd wee wee tail it right up, in a sort of calamitous Frank Spencer/Laurel and Hardy type fashion.
